Whether you are in a committed relationship, or spending the day with your girlfriends (because #selflove), Valentine’s Day is a ready-made excuse to dress up. Stuck for outfit ideas? Before you emerge from your wardrobe with a small mountain of clothes behind you, we’ve got your back.
Whether you are heading out to that cool new bar that just opened, or a dinner for two, if you’re looking for outfit inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Get ready to look good this February 14th with our style tips and fashion trends to help elevate your style.
Back to Black
There are so many reasons to love black. It’s a colour you can count on. Universally flattering, and oh so chic. Go black from head-to-toe or break up the black with neutral tones or even a pop of colour. We love this edgy outfit worn by @laurie_ferraro featuring our Friend in Fashion Chelsea boot in patent leather high-shine. Black can come across as harsh, so make it more feminine with details such as the pleated skirt. High-quality details, such as the handcrafted gold stud details on the welt of the shoe, keep the look elevated.
Lady in Red
Nothing says romance like a touch of rouge. Don’t want to go overboard with the theme? Pop on your favourite red lipstick or brighten up your outfit with a bright red shoe. For the bold, try red as the main colour of your outfit.
Attract the right kind of attention in a floaty red dress, like the red wrap dress below. And Public Service Announcement: wrap dresses flatter pretty much every figure.
- DRESS: Auguste Celestial Frill Sleeve Wrap Midi Dress Red AUD $89 (on sale)
- SUNGLASSES: Gucci sunglasses, AUD $304
- SHOES: Ballettonet Kerrie Hess Cafe Cream AUD $200
You can dress up whilst being comfortable. For summer style, that is effortlessly cool, keep the silhouette simple and focus on minimalist, high quality pieces.
We love this floaty summer dress paired with our Positano slides. Perfect for a nice dinner on a balmy summer night.
Styling tip – match your hair to the occasion. We love this relaxed hair-out style. Let your natural hair run free!
Flirty and Feminine
For women that are sugar, spice and all things nice, you can’t go past a soft colour pallet and floaty dresses. Feminine statement sleeves are uber fashionable right now, giving a high-fashion take on this classic trend.
We love this feminine outfit from @lion_in_the_wild. The black bow ties the feminine look together and monochrome stops it from becoming too busy. Keep it cool with a pair of boots to juxtapose with the feminine frills.
Go feminine with this gorgeous pretty pink rosé colour; pair with our Friend in Fashion Positano in Rosé (pictured above).
Or go for a baby pink with the Kerrie Hess Fleur De Rose flats.
For the more active date (think walking along the beach getting ice-cream) opt for fun, comfortable and unique attire. Unusual prints, fun pieces or new colour combinations can be an exciting way to inject personality into your outfits, without going crazy.
If you want to spice up your outfit, such as the fun jacket below, opt for comfortable shoes such as the Bianco Hitop Sneakers (worn below). The white keeps you looking clean and cool while – most importantly- being comfortable.
